Now that Republicans are moving forward with the bipartisan infrastructure deal, Donald Trump is NOT happy.
Trump once again hammered the “RINOs” in the party, aiming specifically at Senator Mitch McConnell (R-KY).
Trump did not hide the fact he thinks Republicans got completely played here.
You Got Nothing
My opinion all along has been that the moment Democrats made it clear reconciliation was in play, they should have walked away from the bargaining table.
Even if someone like Senator Sinema (D-AZ) or Senator Manchin (D-W.V.) blocks the reconciliation package, both Democrat leadership and Biden were trying to pull a fast one.
They did not even try to hide that whatever they did not get in the bipartisan package would go into the reconciliation package.
House Speaker Pelosi (D-CA) even stated that she would not pass the bipartisan bill unless she had the reconciliation package in hand, having already been passed by the Senate.
Trump saw all this for what it truly is… a sham and a major loss for Republicans.
He also put all the blame for the legislation in the lap of Senator McConnell.
Trump stated, “Under the weak leadership of Mitch McConnell, Senate Republicans continue to lose.
“He lost Arizona, he lost Georgia, he ignored Election Fraud and he doesn’t fight.
“Now he’s giving Democrats everything they want and getting nothing in return.
“No deal is better than a bad deal. Fight for America, not for special interests and Radical Democrats.
“RINOs are ruining America, right alongside Communist Democrats.”
The legislation does do something I warned about all along… it allows Biden to claim victory with the illusion that he could get major bipartisan legislation passed.
Biden took no time at all to claim that victory, either, stating, “This deal signals to the world that our democracy can function, deliver, and do big things.
“As we did with the transcontinental railroad and the interstate highway, we will once again transform America and propel us into the future.”
That, however, is a complete lie the moment a reconciliation bill goes through.
Trump is dead right here because McConnell has done nothing more than hand Biden a monstrous win that he will use against them as the GOP tries to retake Congress.
